Against a lot of odds, the pets at the Home For Life sanctuary are too busy enjoying life to feel down.

At the Home For Life sanctuary, they believe in the “Third Door” policy:


In the world of animal welfare as it has always existed, there are two doors through which any shelter or rescue animal will eventually pass: Door Number One is adoption. Door Number Two is euthanasia. Now, thanks to Home for Life’s visionary efforts, another option exists: The Third Door®. The care-for-life sanctuary.

Here are some of the animals at Home For Life, some of which even come to them from other countries:
